New Okhla Industrial Development Authority (Noida) is set to install 74,000 LED street lights very soon in a bid to save energy cost and promote environment friendly technologies.


“The government is committed to promote solar power and LED lighting technologies with Noida itself making a headway for replacing all 74,000 traditional lights with smart LED street lights which are energy saving, cost–efficient, environment-friendly which can help us save various other costs,” Noida Chairman and CEO Alok Tandon said, ahead of the industry event LED Expo.


LED street lights are considered 50 per cent more efficient as compared to incandescent bulbs and High-Pressure Sodium (HPS) lighting.


As part of the plan, in the first phase, the authority has already replaced 400 of the 3,800 street lights along the 25 Kilometer Noida-Greater Noida expressway. The lights are being replaced by Tata projects Ltd.


The centre had launched the Street Lighting National Programme (SLNP) in January 2015 in order to replace 14 million conventional street lights with smart LED variants by 2019. The programme is being implemented by Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (EESL), and arm of the power ministry.
